My husband and I have been looking for a house for over a year, and can't seem to find "our house". We have a lot of criteria to follow and not a lot of money to work with, which has made the search frustrating at times, and heartbreaking at others. Finally, a few months ago, we found the perfect place. We went to an open house, but it was way over our price range. When we tried to set up a day to check it out with a contractor (it was in rough shape and would require a rehab loan) they told us they had an offer and had accepted it. We were upset, but accepted that it had already been over our price and would have needed a lot more for the work to be done. A few weeks later, I was cruising the real estate site, and found that the house was still there, and for 20,000 less than it had been. I was elated, but my husband thought that there must have been more wrong than we thought for them to lower the price that much, like it needed a septic or something. He put the house out of his mind, but I just can't. I look at it online all the time, and just saw that they lowered the price again more than 50,000 off the original price they had set when we looked at it. It is still over our price range, but much closer than it had been, and I can't stop imagining and dreaming it is ours. I am a very smart person and I KNOW there is a lot wrong with the house, and I KNOW that right now we can't afford it, but I still dream about it and catch myself crying about it. My husband has forgotten about it, written it off in his mind as an impossible dream, but I just can't forget it. I told him last night that it was cheaper again and he sighed like "Are you still on that?" but didn't say anything. Why can't I just write it off like he has? I just can't let go!!

There might be something seriously wrong with it, or more than one thing.
There likely is something majorly wrong with the place-
